We first published a Best Companies feature in July 1994 with profiles of a mere 10 companies. In August 1995, years before Fortune and other magazines first published similar lists, Oregon Business debuted the first 100 Best Companies to Work For, after six months and 600 hours of staff time sorting through applications from hundreds of companies and personally interviewing employees. The first list was scored in five categories: pay and benefits; employee involvement, community involvement; advancement and training; and workplace culture.
